“...Their lives are one continuous battle ground.”


But they seem to like it that way. The sooner our troops are out of that shithole country, the better. Don’t take 14 months, get them out in 14 weeks. Let the Afghans sort out their prisoner swaps.

Maybe that's what our lame-stream media wants us to believe. When we lived in the Middle East the ONLY news coming from there was the interminable, never-ending tribal warfare.

Those who suffered the worst were women, children and older people. No one tribe has ever won a decisive victory as to end the war.

From Google
Afghanistan is an Islamic republic consisting of three branches of power (executive, legislative, and judiciary) overseen by checks and balances. The country is led by President Ashraf Ghani, who replaced Hamid Karzai in 2014.

Doesn't that sound rosy, sweet and nice?

From Google:

War in Afghanistan (2001-2020)
The War in Afghanistan (also called the US War in Afghanistan, Afghanistan War, or Fourth Anglo-Afghan War), code named Operation Enduring Freedom (2001–14) and Operation Freedom's Sentinel (2015–2020), followed the United States invasion of Afghanistan of 7 October 2001, when the United States of America and its allies successfully drove the Taliban from power in order to deny al-Qaeda a safe base of operations in Afghanistan.[
Since the initial objectives were completed, a coalition of over 40 countries (including all NATO members) formed a security mission in the country. The war has since mostly involved US and allied Afghan government troops battling Taliban insurgents.
The war in Afghanistan is the longest war in US history.
